Lungs and the Lotus Heart
August 16 – Friday 2:00pm – 5:00pm
The heart and the lungs work together to bring energy and vitality through the body. In this class we expand the lung cavity through backbends and inversions in order to open the chest. Then we center into the heart chakra through meditation and pranayama.
Gravity as Therapy: SATYA, Savasana and Yoga Nidra
August 16 – Friday 6:00pm – 8:00pm
In this class we drop with gravity in order to bring energy and vitality to the subtle body. We will release our bones and connective tissues to experience a profound letting go. We use SATYA and savasana to “drop in” so that layers of the psyche and emotional self can dissolve. Then through the practice of yoga nidra (the yogic sleep), like rain into dry ground, we soak into the essential awareness, nourishing nerve, blood and bone.
August 17 – Saturday 9:30am – 12:30pm
In this class come prepared to generate blood flow through dynamic and supported postures.We practice twists and side bends to “pranagize” (energize) the body by bringing blood flow to all the tissues of the body. This aids in nourishing the tissues and bringing energy and vitality to the body and mind.
Moving into Stillness
August 17 – Saturday 2:00pm – 5:00pm
This class includes movement with precision of alignment. In the alchemy of our practice we unite stillness with movement, whether in seated meditation, flowing through postures or doing unwinding movements on the floor (SATYA). This leads to states of sublime awareness and feather fine concentration
